We're sending a mission team to serve the thousands of people who walk the Camino de Santiago Compostela each summer.
This 24-7 mission team will be located on the Portuguese route of the Camino, which is the second most popular route after the French – it is also very beautiful.
You'll spend three days walking the Camino, and seven days serving pilgrims at a rest house.
If you're passionate about having conversations about Jesus and eager to meet spiritual seekers, as well as being part of a community together, this is the team for you!
Read more about the team in the “What to Expect” section, below!
What to expect
Many walking the Camino de Santiago are looking for spiritual answers. Some describe it as a spiritual adventure and an opportunity to retreat from the busyness of life. People are seeking and open.
The team will be based in a village called Vilanova de Arousa in a pioneering facility, which is beginning to reach many pilgrims. There will also be space to walk on the Camino for 3 days as part of the 24-7 team.
Come and experience community, mission and service in the context of pilgrimage at the Camino de Santiago:
Community, as we live, learn, share, laugh, break bread and minister together.
Mission, as we pray, give, walk with and minister to spiritual seekers set on pilgrimage.
Service, as we welcome, host, and show love to hundreds of pilgrims
People who are interested in this trip must be in good physical condition, able to walk a lot each day, and be willing to be outdoors in high temperatures.
All 24-7 Prayer mission teams have a 3-fold focus:
PRAY – mission teams contain a strong element of focused prayer, which all team members will participate in. This is often 24-7.
PLAY – mission teams will celebrate the culture that they’re in, together, and what God is already doing within it. This could take the form of communal meals, activities or experiences.
OBEY – mission teams contain an element of sacrificial mission and outreach, serving local people in that place.
Our Mission Teams are an incredible opportunity to serve in a local 24-7 Prayer community, and we're so excited to see what God will do through your trip!
